Once again Eyris Pearls along with Master Jeweller Jacek Pawlowski are proud to support the Miss World NZ children’s charity auction in China. This year’s contestant Deborah Lambie who is currently studying medicine, has chosen ‘Empowerment’ as her campaign theme. With this theme in mind they have created a one off piece using the white camellia as their inspiration!
The Empowerment Pearl celebrates equal rights for woman.New Zealand women were the first in the world to be granted the right to vote in 1893.Those who supported this historic change werepresented with a white camellia to wear in their buttonhole.The white camellia has since become an endearing symbol of the empowerment of women.
The unfolding silver petals of the white camellia represent hope and equality for all people. At the centre of the flower is a Gem grade blue green Eyris Pearl that displays the colours of New Zealand.Together, the colours of the pearl combined with the white camellia, represents liberation and empowerment of women spreading from New Zealand to the rest of the world, and therefore creating a better future for our children.
